Imagine our happiness to read about this amazing feat of global politics with The Global Goals for sustainable development. It's new commitment from world leaders to make change and alleviate world hunger, extreme poverty, climate change and much more. If you ever want an example of people working together for the right cause - our own planet and people - this is it, right here.
"World Leaders have committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. Fix climate change. The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people. If the Goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. TELL EVERYONE."
Our eyes are fixed on number 12: Responsible Consumption and Production. This is everything that COSSAC hopes to represent and uphold with our ethical and sustainable approach to fashion. If more brands follow the same example we can reduce the damage and harm that the huge consumer market does to our planet and people.
So, how awesome is this!? But the thing with fighting for rights is that in order for it to work it needs people to decide to get active and to fight for them. So the main task in making these targets a reality to spread awareness as fast as possible. Visit the Global Goals website for more information about how you can get involved by spreading the news and educating your peers. They need to reach 7 billion people in 7 days so We The People need to work together!
